I did it.
I set a goal this year to do what a friend of mine had accomplished a couple of years ago when I was just starting out on this crazy fitness journey. I remember thinking that her milage was just crazy! How could anyone with 2 legs really run that much in a year?
I’m grinning ear to ear as I type this: I ran 300.14 miles this year. On my legs. These legs carried me through:
5-Miler Tulip Trail Run
2 Half Marathons
five 5k races
a 5k Warrior Dash mud run
…not to mention moving, deployment, and kiddos with which to train!
Not all the goals I set out to accomplish in 2012 were met – I am especially proud of this one mileage goal. I set out to do it and despite excuses, setbacks, self-doubt, inconvenience, pain, deployments, etc. I DID IT ANYWAY. I got it done.
I am proud of that.
Happy new year! Happy Running! Here’s to many more miles and accomplished goals in 2013!
